Thank you to everyone to listened to yesterday's edition of BumbleBee Brunch LIVE. We heard lots of great new tunes from Gustaf, Modest Mouse, Tim Kile, M8, The Joy Formidable, Shottie & TeV95, LUMP, Motel Black, and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard.
Friday's program saw the return of Brooklyn duo Sleigh Bells, who we haven't heard from since their 2017 "Kid Kruschev" EP. I was delighted to learn earlier in the week that Alexis Krauss and Derek Miller have announced a new full-length LP, "Texis" to be released on 9/10/2021. They also announced a tour (with Kills Birds) which will stop at The Paradise in Boston on 2/24/2022. We played the first song to be release from the forthcoming LP, "Locust Laced." Check-out a fun video for the song HERE.
It was a week ago that I saw Boston garage rock mainstays The Dogmatics at ONCE Somerville's new Boynton Yards venue. This week saw the release of a very cool collaboration between Dogmatics frontman Jerry Lehane and Dicky Barrett from the Mighty Mighty Bosstones. Grab a copy of "Drinking Life" over on the Rum Bar Records Bandcamp page. Thank you to Malibu Lou at Rum Bar for getting a copy over to me ahead of the release!
Friday's Brunch also featured the arrival of some catchy glam rock from the Great White North in the form of Winnipeg trio, The Sorels. Their self-titled debut EP first appeared on 7-inch vinyl via Canadian label Reta Records in 2019. It's now available digitally and on CD as part a 2-band release from Boston label Rum Bar Records. Do The Rum Bar Rumble is available now and also features Montreal band Pale Lips. Check-out The Sorels' music video for "She's In The Gang." It's kinda like Chuck Berry meets The New York Dolls... Nice! Would love to see The Sorels play a show in Boston someday.
